ESENTEPE
NORTHERN CYPRUS
     
 


 



CAR HIRE

Staying in Esentepe (and indeed at any location outside the cities/large towns) necessitates hiring a car if you want to get around the beautiful island which has so much to see.

The majority of shops and restaurants/bars are between 1km and 3km from the villa – the nearest 1km – and therefore not within easy walking distance. While taxis, an hourly daytime bus from Esentepe village to Girne, and restaurant courtesy cars are readily available, it is highly recommended that guests hire a car, preferably in advance of their stay to ensure availability.

Traffic in Cyprus drives on the same side of the road as the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Japan, and South-East Asia. Traffic density in the Esentepe district is very light, and sparse toward the Karpas peninsular. It is heavier in the cities and major towns but not normally excessive.

Compared with other Medierranean countries, car hire costs in Northern Cyprus are reasonable. Here are some companies you might consider using:

1. See also our comments on car hire from Larnaca and Ercan airports which can be found on our Airport Transfers page.

2. Legislation prohibits hire cars being delivered to the South (RoC) but a few car hire firms in the North (TRNC) do allow their vehicles to be taken to the South by hirers after they have been delivered to locations in the North. They will make a charge for the paperwork (Pacific Car Rentals charge £50) and hirers will also have to purchase separate car insurance for one month at the border (approx 25-35 Euros).

3. If required, we can provide guests with detailed driving instructions from Ercan airport to the villa via both the Tatlisu and Catalkoy passes.
